ICC Offering “Express Enrollment” July 13-15 for Summer Minimester and Fall Classes

Illinois Central College will offer “Express Enrollment” Monday through Wednesday, July 13-15, from 8 am to 4 pm, on the East Peoria Campus. Those interested in enrolling at ICC can complete the process of applying and enrolling in just one day. No appointment is necessary, and free parking is available in Lots A and B and in the Visitors Lot. Classes for the summer minimester begin July 24, and the fall semester begins August 17.

“Express Enrollment” can be completed in just a few hours’ time. Participants are encouraged to arrive by 2 pm in order to complete all of the steps leading to enrollment in one day. The process includes: Completing and processing an ICC application, completing placement testing, meeting with an advisor to develop a class schedule, filling out financial aid paperwork and setting up a payment plan, and getting an official ICC identification card.

Potential students should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form prior to coming on campus. ICC Financial Assistance staff is available to answer questions about completing the FAFSA form. Students are encouraged to bring with them documentation requested to complete the process.

In order to complete all of the steps of admission and enrollment, participants should be prepared to bring the following items with them:

  • A valid photo ID (driver’s license, passport, military ID, or other government issued ID).
  • Check book or credit card to set up a payment plan. If you are using a credit card to set up a payment plan and you are NOT the cardholder, you will need to bring a letter from the cardholder authorizing you to use the credit card. If you don’t bring the letter, we WILL NOT accept the payment.
  • Social security card.

In addition, potential students wishing to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form also should bring with them: previous year’s tax transcripts issued by the IRS, W-2 forms and current bank statements. (If the participant is aged 24 or younger, the parents’ social security cards, previous year’s tax transcripts, W-2 forms and current bank statements also are necessary.)

“Express Enrollment” is provided on a first come, first-served basis. The total time needed to complete all of the steps depends on the participant’s individual needs. Advisors will be available to help students wishing to enroll on a full-time basis (12 hours or more) in most majors and those students wishing to enroll on a part-time basis. However, follow up appointments with an advisor may be necessary in some cases. Some programs require restricted enrollment; therefore, only general education or prerequisite courses will be available to students interested in those programs.

For those interested in financial assistance, ICC is offering “Experience ICC” scholarships to anyone within the college’s district who has never taken a class at the college. The scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis and cover half of the cost of the summer tuition, with a maximum of six credit hours and/or $375. Students may enroll full- or part-time in any major but must have a 2.0 or better high school or college grade point average. If it has been more than four years since the student has attended high school or college, the GPA requirement is waived.
